Dominic Calvert-Lewin has shown his support to Dele Alli after his emotional interview.

The Everton striker responded to Dele’s latest Instagram post with a sympathetic message after an emotional interview with the 27-year-old was published on The Overlap’s YouTube channel.

Three months after returning from a disastrous loan spell at Besiktas, Dele has chosen to open up in a candid interview that reveals his mental health struggles, his childhood trauma and more.

The midfielder took to Instagram to promote his sit-down with Gary Neville and Calvert-Lewin was one of many players that replied with their support.

The England international commented: ‘Extremely proud of you bro’ – followed by two blue hearts.

The pair have both struggled over the last couple of seasons, with Calvert-Lewin also enduring a fall from grace that has seen him spent a large chunk of his time on the treatment table.

Both players are eager to make their comeback this season as Everton look to avoid a third consecutive relegation scrap.

Could Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Dele Alli be Everton’s dream team?

Everton have really struggled for goals since Richarlison joined Tottenham Hotspur last year, however they may not need to invest heavily in their attack.

It is a huge ‘if’, but if Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Dele Alli can both stay fit and find some form in the early stages of the new season then the Toffees could be in for a real treat.

The pair have had fantastic goal contribution records when they have been at their best and they could be a huge attacking threat if they can combine.

It is certainly an exciting thought for Sean Dyche’s side, however fans will have to cross their fingers and hope it can work out for them both.

They also want to avoid putting two much pressure on their players, with the duo likely to be eased in after recent difficulties.
